Blackwell CBD Pet Tincture features an all-natural, organic concentration of pure CBD oil and other key essential cannabinoids to create the highest quality CBD tincture available for your pet today. As a Canine Massage Therapist and lifestyle detox coach, I am always seeking the most wholesome, natural products to augment our daily lives with. I see so many pets with pain management needs but as the wrong product can be seriously toxic to your pet, I took a long time researching products before I could recommend something that is both effective and safe.
CBD Tincture is one of the most effective ways for your pet to take advantage of all the benefits CBD can offer as an aid in the reduction of symptoms of anxiety, pain, and inflammation!
With CBD oil being so popular today, it’s fantastic that we look for ways to incorporate CBD into our pets’ lives. Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households own a pet of some kind with dogs and cats being among the most popular. With research starting to show CBD could provide an array of health benefits for our four-legged friends.
What kind of Pets can take CBD?
Every mammal, including our dogs and cats, can consume CBD safely. This is because they, like humans, are born with a fully functioning endocannabinoid system located in the central and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid systems job is to provide homeostasis and keep our body balanced, which is crucial for our overall health and well-being. Are you feeling too hot? Is there something building up in your bloodstream? Are your hormone levels off? Your body will activate the endocannabinoid system to regulate that function until it’s back at its optimal level. Key areas this balancing happens are with:
- Motor control
- Temperature regulation
What are the benefits of giving CBD to my pet?
The first clinical study was done in July 2018 by Cornell University looking at the efficacy of CBD oil for arthritic dogs, with results showing more than 80% of the dogs in the study saw a significant decrease in pain and improved mobility. Humans and pets alike possess endocannabinoid systems. CBD will affect the same receptors similarly whether it’s a human or pet so CBD will have very similar effects on our pets that humans experience. CBD has the potential to help your pet with the most common areas including:
- Pain Relief
While research continues to further understand, there’s no question CBD has the potential to make a tremendous difference in our pet’s lives and I see positive (glowing) reports from my clients.
Is CBD Safe for my pet?
Hemp-Derived CBD products with less than .3% THC are considered amongst researchers to have a very high margin of safety and be non-toxic to the animal. That stated, when we talk about THC infused products, researchers aren’t so sure because Dogs specifically have more cannabinoid receptors than humans do in their brain that THC binds to that creates the psychoactive effect. Therefore, studies show that at extreme doses, THC Infused products can be extremely toxic to your pet. This is why transparency is vital and having access to all 3rd party testing and relevant information is critical when deciding which CBD product to give your pet to prevent this issue from happening.
What about Dosing?
Each and every one of us is unique and so is your fur kid. Every dog or cat will be different and that requires some trial and error at the start to determine which dose will work best for your pet. The study done by Cornell mentions using a similar method with humans, coming up with a starting dose by calculating 1-5mg CBD per every 10 pounds of body weight. Ultimately, for this particular study, they decided to use 2mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. So, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, an ample starting dose would be around 10mg CBD. We want to point out however, high doses of CBD with pets has been shown to have a sedative effect and is something to watch for when dosing.
